Devolver Digital will only publish the most absolutely absurd games around, and Ape Out is no different. It’s a top-down brawler where you beat the ever-loving shit out of your captors, use them as meat shields, as weapons, and much more. You can grab enemies with guns and force them to shoot other baddies, throw them out windows, and smash them to a pulp.

It reminds me a lot of Mr. Shifty, but a lot less elegant and a lot more violent and I am totally on board with that. The second best part of this game is by far the art style, which is actually helped by Bennett Foddy, the guy that made everyone hate sledgehammers and cauldrons. Check out the trailer above and let us know what violent way you want to start killing people in the game. You sadistic primates.
